    Year of construction: 1938Architect: Erich MindnerIt was not until 1936 that Steinheim received a pipeline network for the water supply. The water tower made of quarry stone basalt from Steinheim was completed in 1938 according to plans by the Darmstadt architect Erich Mindner. Its height is 49 meters to the top of the tower. With its concrete tank and a capacity of 600 cubic meters, it is still used today as a service and extinguishing water reservoir for Steinheim.The water tower with raised round arch niches in brick construction is a testimony to National Socialist monumental architecture in Hanau. The gate hall, open on two sides, with pointed arches, cross vaults and wrought iron bars was originally intended to be designed as a hall of honor for the fallen. It was provided with slogans and inscriptions, which were later removed. The innkeeper Franz Ewald (1876-1949) from Steinheim, who held the duties of water master during the war years, saved the tower from being blown up by the Wehrmacht in March 1945, which was planned to make the invasion of the US troops more difficult. Until 1978, the water tower, reminiscent of medieval defense towers, was crowned by a wrought-iron eagle.

    There is a small chestnut grove by the water tower. Wonderful place for a break. (Unfortunately no benches.)
